General Audio / Re: Album Art Downloader XUI
Last post by lineuphere -
Such a great program.  FWIW, with everything checked, the only sites that find images for me are Deezer, iTunes, MusicBrainz, LastFM Cover, YesAsia, Discogs, 45world CD Singles, Juno Download, and Qobuz (fr-fr).

The main one I'm interested in troubleshooting is 45cat as it's where I can find the best singles artwork.  I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be modifying its .boo script in some way?

Support - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 for Mac: bugs & wishes
Last post by Guildencrantz -
New bugs:

– contrary to what the change log says, foobar now *forgets* playlist column widths (especially the date column). It remembered them just fine before the fix.
– new equalizer window forgets its size and position between relaunches.

General Audio / Re: DVD convert to DSD

* Otherwise, the JRiver Media Center ($70 or $90, likely not worth it for only this single application, but if you like the software for the right reasons ...) can do this on-the-fly: it can convert whatever input to a DSD output upon playback.
...and what about Foobar2000 + dsd converter/transcoder ?

I have some ISO files with DVD/Audio that I want to convert to DSD64 (DSD).
1. Why ?
2. Do you need resulting file(s) or just "on the fly" conversion ?

Well if you seriously want to do a lossy operation to create ugly amounts of noise and save to an inferior format that causes clicking upon track transitions and ...

* I might be wrong, but I think it was https://tascam.com/int/product/hi-res_editor/top I used when I did some testing.

Other Lossy Codecs / Re: TSAC: Very Low Bitrate Audio Compression

It's a pity to realize that TSAC needs a lot of computing power. Why?

I'll take the exceptionally obvious bait, because why not:

Sometimes its nice to program something just to see if something is possible, without any regard to how its supposedly meant to be done by others. Sometimes coding can be a creative exercise to solve a particular problem with completely random out of the box solutions. Such as requiring AVX2 or even GPGPU methods. Or sometimes programming something without actual needed care for resources because it works for yourself fine is enough of a reason. Considering who wrote TSAC, no doubt it was one such exercise, like thier other mini projects.

Case in point: one of my personal things which requires GL4.6/GLES2, Windows 10/modern Linux, C++20, SSE4/NEON etc. I do it because its intended for me only and my stuff runs it just fine. Even a old Linux box and RPI4.
